Re-established this past year, Franciscan Soy Candles is a unique ministry producing artisan candles, in varied styles and scents. These Franciscan signature candles come with a large, 12 oz. Libbey Status glass jar, along with a lid, including a 3-part wood wick system and a specially designed gift box. Created originally by Br. Andre Picotte, OFM Conv., during the Christmas Season 2012, this hobby turned ministry served to be a great source of income benefiting our Franciscan Charity Fund, all while making great gifts and filling your home with lovely fragrances. This past year, Br. Andre had to step down from the ministry, but he still serves as a consultant and advisor. The day to day operations and creation of Franciscan Soy Candles have moved to Hanburg, NY under the direction of Br. Brian Newbigging, OFM Conv. (Director) with the help of Fr. Francis Lombardo, OFM Conv. (Assistant Director). Place an order with them at 518-496-4805 or email them at FranciscanCandles@gmail.com.
